The satin stitch is a great stitch for beginners. It's comprised of long stitches that are usually straight and close together to create a smooth, filled in appearance. I love using this stitch to fill in sections with color. We'll be using the satin stitch in two different sections of the Stained Glass Sampler embroidery pattern. Watch the two videos to find out when and where to use the satin stitch. Scroll down for step-by-step instructions along with information on how to get the Stained Glass Sampler embroidery pattern and join the Pattern Club stitch-along.
1. Bring your needle up from the back of the fabric to the front of the fabric.
2. Then bring the needle down through the fabric at the opposite side of the shape you are filling, creating a long straight stitch.
3. Bring your needle back up through the fabric, right next to the start of your last stitch to start your next stitch.
4. Continuing to fill in the space. Stitches should be close together, like they’re hugging to avoid gaps and evenly fill the area.
